Milan Dvořák (born 19 November 1934) is a former Czech football player.

Dvořák started his career at Bohemians Prague. At the age of 18 he already debuted in the Czechoslovakia national team. Two years later, in 1954 he moved to Dukla Prague to serve his military service there. He stayed at Dukla even after his compulsory service ended. Though he played mostly on a position of defender, Dvořák was a universal player who could operate also as midfielder and forward. In the 1956 season he scored 15 goals and together with Miroslav Wiecek of Baník Ostrava became the top goalscorer of the Czechoslovak First League.

He appeared in 283 league matches and scored 61 goals. During his career at Dukla, Dvořák won the Czechoslovak First League six times, in 1956, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964 and 1966.[1]

Dvořák was a member of the Czechoslovakia national football team and played at the 1958 FIFA World Cup in Sweden, where he appeared in four matches and scored two goals.
